Members Open: POSTCARDS FOR A GREENER EARTH: Call for Entries

Our environment is constantly changing. As our environment changes, so does the need to become increasingly aware of the problems that surround it. With a massive influx of natural disasters, warming and cooling periods, different types of weather patterns and much more, people need to be aware of what types of environmental problems our planet is facing. 

These megatrends present major global threats for plant Earth -

  • Air pollution and climate change
  • Deforestation
  • Species Extinction
  • Soil Degradation
  • Overpopulation
  • Plastic Pollution in Our Oceans

This year Artist members (Illustrator and Illustrator-S) are asked to create a postcard 6” by 4” using both sides, either vertical or horizontal, that is Earth, environment or climate concerned, addressing a global threat to our Earth.

As Illustrators we become “visual journalists” covering various significant topics around the world and assist in spreading the word through our art and knowledge.

A jury will determine the best among the entries to receive the Stevan Dohanos Award.

Postcards are required to be framed in a black 11"x 14" inch frame, hung vertically.  Both sides of the postcard will be required to be shown.  Each side of the postcard must be created on a separate paper, matted or mounted together in one frame.

After the conclusion of the SI exhibit, Postcards for a Greener Earth will travel to FTC Art/Place Gallery in Connecticut throughout the month of February.
